Zaheer Khan was one of the greatest fast bowlers to have come out of India. He represented India in 92 Tests, 200 ODIs and 17 T20Is between 2000 and 2014, picking up 311, 282 and 17 wickets respectively. He also played a major role in helping India win the ICC World Cup in 2011 under MS Dhoni.

Speaking to IANS ahead of the start of the Test series against South Africa, Zaheer said that that these are exciting times to be a fast bowler in India.

He said, "These are exciting times to be a fast bowler in India. The likes of Bumrah, Shami, Ishant, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Navdeep Saini among others have proven the fact that the current Indian team is a powerhouse of bowling and it is by far the best bowling attack in the world."

"It feels fantastic as a fast bowler and I hope they keep putting in the hard work and maintain the rhythm which has seen them achieve results."

On comparisons between Sourav Ganguly and Virat Kohli, Zaheer Khan said, "Sourav made us believe that we can win overseas and inspired us to play with a lot of aggression. Dhoni was calm through tough situations, yet aggressive in his approach. We won the World Cup under him, so it was always very special playing under his leadership.

Virat is a lot like Dada, he is expressive, bold in his decisions and always pumps the team-up through crunch situations. His sublime batting form is always reflective of the way he leads the team on field. I wish to see him lift the World Cup for India one day."

On India's pace sensation, Jasprit Bumrah, he said, "I have tracked Jasprit's progress since a very young age. Since his early days with Mumbai Indians he was extremely talented and I am happy as to how over the years he has been able to nurture himself well and brought out some stellar performances for his team."

"His awkward action has worked really well for him, I feel he just needs to keep working on his fitness and keep evolving without putting too much pressure on himself."
